Sweet Heart Deal. Former SUNY head Jim Malatras is exiting with a Golden Parachute. The disgraced educator will be paid 450,000 for a one year Study Leave. He then will receive an 186,000 annual salary as a tenured Professor at Empire State College. These arrangements are a disgrace to the public university system. Malatras was forced out over profane text messages he sent cronies concerning Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan. The disparaging remarks were unbecoming to his office. He was a long time ally of Cuomo. That the SUNY system should provide so generously for him following his resignation defies comprehension. Sweet Heart Deal. We can only imagine what other goodies will be in store for Cuomo confidantes !!
